Susie Jones, "Dr. James E. Whitsett and his wife Clarissa Belle Martin Whitsett. They lived in Bethany, WV, until he retired and then moved back to Perryopolis, PA. I don’t know where or when this picture was taken. Dr. J. E. Whitsett died in 1907, so it was taken before that!"

Roxanna Whitsett and Jessie E. (Whitsett) Thistlewait, daughters of Ralph C. Whitsett Jr. and granddaughters of Ralph C. Whitsett Sr. Roxanna was born in September 1879 and appears to be about six years old.  A note on the back of the picture indicates that Jessie was married when the picture was taken.  I believe that dates the photo to 1886.

Susanne Jones, "Charles and Jim Whitsett, taken about 1928, down by the old barn behind the House in Hannibal, Ohio where all the children were raised. Charles was the youngest child and pretty badly spoiled, as you can see by the grin on his face."

Susanne Jones, "There were two Dr. Charles C. Whitsett’s. This one was Dr. John W. Whitsett’s brother, although this Dr. Charles C. Whitsett spelled his name WHITSITT. By the time this picture was taken, he was practicing medicine in Freeport, Ohio. The child in the corner is James Norman McLaughlin, his step-grandson. The picture was taken in his office at his house, about 1930. The other Dr. Charles C. Whitsett was the son of Dr. John W. Whitsett, i.e., they were uncle and nephew. "
